    I know that some hens will crow in the absence of a rooster, but what about crowing WITH the roosters?

    My neighbors chickens are starting to crow but this one she saw crowing just doens't LOOK like a rooster...

    Would not have thought so. The rooster will be the top of the pecking order and the hens will be in a order. I dont think a hen would crow with a rooster present

    but what happens when there are like WAY too many roosters?

    she says this chicken doesn't look roostery at all. yet she saw it crow... she's taking the roosters away this evening and is conflicted about taking this one.
